Global technology and software company Emerson unveiled the new PACSystems IPC 2010 Compact Industrial PC (IPC). The rugged industrial computer is designed to handle a wide range of machine and discrete part manufacturing automation applications. It is also designed to serve manufacturing sites and OEM machine builders who need a ruggedized, compact, durable IPC to cost-effectively support their Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), among other digital transformation initiatives. The company says that the IPC 2010 addresses this by pre-loading the PACEdge industrial edge platform and elements of Movicon.NExT SCADA software, which helps users run applications quickly using browser-based configuration. To maximize reliability and minimize user effort, provisions are included for keeping the software platform current and passively maintained, it notes. “Many customers undergoing a digital transformation want to start small and earn trust as they seek out value from edge-enabled applications,” said William Paczkowski, product manager for the IPC 2010 for Emerson’s discrete automation business, in a statement. “The IPC 2010 is specifically designed as a pre-packaged and economical solution so they can get running quickly and cost effectively.”
